Original Compositions

Original Compositions

Although we are primarily piano teachers, we are both still active composers and have written over 20 books of music.  Piano teachers across the country use our books and our students play most of the books we have written. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing any of these books.

What you will find below are the pieces in our most popular books.  Our students can listen to the recording to help their practice of the pieces.  And the Power Trip and Enchanted Journey books work well to just listen and enjoy.
